    Thanks, guys -- yes, they are quite beautiful. I question a bit my splurge to buy the S/L of THE BEST OF SUBTERRANEAN rather than the trade, given my 'meh' take on most fantasy and contemporary sci-fi (which presumably this collection may (or may not) contain), but I'm also a bit of an anthology fan, so it made sense at the time. I hope it'll justify the cost. I am certainly excited and pleased and confident about SWAN SONG, though...while I have an inscribed 1st HC trade of it (the Dark Harvest HC), I'm thrilled to add this new S/L to my collection.

    Not sure, but it wouldn't surprise me. Will prefaces all his Too Much Horror Fiction blog posts with an allusion to a song lyric, so that would make sense.

    Regarding the book itself, I finished it over the last two nights, and it's just as good as you've likely heard...for those of us who've been reading the genre for a long while (me: 30 years) and were there in the '80s boom and the '90s bust, it's a bittersweet stroll down memory lane. For those who are new to it all, it'll be a great introduction to what many of us Old Timers think of as the Good 'Ol Days, when bookstores proliferated and horror pbos in all their silver foil glory stared up at us on shelves everywhere. My only complaint is that it's not longer...hopefully there'll be a sequel down the road.

    Got tired of my To Be Read (TBR) pile(s) being stacked up three different piles on the floor in my otherwise organized and clean office/library...too damn messy and seemed like unsightly testaments to my lack of restraint.

    While it's still abundantly clear I have far too many books in my TBR pile and have no cause to buy new books (and yet, of course, I will ), especially given my reduced reading time of late -- at least now they're organized and all together in one spot (though I still had to put a small pile on the side on the floor...oh well). Cheap DVD tower only cost $40 today, but pays big dividends in organizational peace of mind.

    I've given in completely to audiobooks, Ron. Otherwise, it'd be an endless battle.

    Been really enjoying audiobooks lately. I have always enjoyed short stories on audio but I always preferred full length novels be read over listened to. I have been listening to full length novels over the last few months and find myself wondering why I resisted this for so long. With that said I still love the feel of a book in my hands will not stop reading physical books.

    I never met him, but the author is usenet/internet friend of mine going back to 1990. He also published a Kabbalah book. Currently he is writing a book about Dante's Inferno. I always buy books by my friend's. Anything Colin writes is truly a keeper.
